“I really don’t like the idea that the design or fashion choices a person makes should be limited by their culturla/ethnic background. It must be possible to borrow from other cultures without somehow insulting them, and quite frankly, I don’t see what’s insulting about any styles becoming trendy….
I didn’t even notice your disagreement of my original post so in reference to your reply, that post wasn’t written with you in mind. Actually, the point of my last post wasn’t so much about the headdresses as it was about being a minority, and preserving your culture.
And I also fail to see how dancing around in a war bonnet shows any sort of respect for the item. It doesn’t show an appreciation … to appreciate something you have to understand it, and beyond “it’s pretty”, they don’t understand shit about what they’re wearing. If so, they wouldn’t be wearing something that was reserved for men who fought in battle.
In no way am I saying that what you wear has to be limited to your cultural background … but some things in life are sacred, and convey a deeper sense of meaning, which it seems people (some hipsters) don’t understand, or are unwilling to understand.
i think there is a strong emphasis for girls to look pretty and thin and put together for their man. so when talking about weight everyone expects a girl to look skinny. i have never really heard about people or society expecting guys to be skinny….??
That’s what I’m…
Reminds me of tv shows where there’s always a fat guy with the skinny hot wife, but never really the other way around.
